Corban is an outstanding university. It is full of the best prophesors in this country and some are even top ranking in the world for their field of work. There are many different focuses at Corban as well as sports and extra curricular activities. This university also has some of the best students anywhere around. Corban has been talked about as the school you attend to find a wife or husband. Well, That statement isn't exactly correct, but it isn't exactly wrong either. Many of my close friends have ended up married and I am well on my way to asking the question! It's just not time yet. So, Corban is great! And the people are the best!

Corban University was a great school from the get-go. I felt really welcome and loved it the minute I stepped onto campus. The professors and staff here are always willing to help a student out, whether it be dealing with academics, family issues, you name it! I think my favorite part about this school would have to be the countless number of extracurricular activities here on campus. There are so many opportunities for the students to get involved and get to know each other. I would choose this school if I could do it all over again. I would choose Corban because it's just that awesome! I mean, the community is great, the classes are challenging, the food is good, and I hardly ever get bored here. Corban University is the place to be!

I live in one of the oldest dorms, Aagard, which is an all-girls dorm, but I still love it. Because our dorm is so old, we don't have air conditioning, and there are days that the hot water (and the radiators) go out, but we all still love our building, and I wouldn't want to move to a different one. Aagard has character, and our common "suffering" brings us together as a dorm. Aagard is a bit quieter than some of the other dorms, I've heard, but as an introvert, I appreciate that. There are still fun things going on, though, and always doors open if you want to chat with people. We have a great laundry room, and hangout areas on every floor. Lots of places if you want to watch a movie with friends or do homework.

We also have a great relationship with our brother dorm, Farrar, and are very very close to the dining hall - perk!
